The Zmeinaya Bay Tour

The Zmeinaya Bay is famous for its thermal springs flowing out in several places on the shore - on the land as well as under water. The bay is named after the grass-snake as those non-poisonous races can sometimes be spotted next to the thermal spring. At the place where water flows out, two wooden wells are built for swimming. The output of the spring is stable and equals to 0.2-0.3 liters per second or around 20 cubic meters per day. The temperature of water can range from +32 degrees Celsius to +56 degrees Celsius depending on the season. The water of the spring contains hydrocarbons, sulfates and sodium, with mineralization equal to 0.5 g per liter. The water smells and tastes of hydrogen sulfide, fluoride concentration ranges from 10 to 23 mg per liter. The local folks use the water to treat radiculitus and other disorders of locomotor system. We offer you to visit the Zmeinaya Bay.
